I want to dedicate this tournament victory to my daughter, likely she is going to watch me (highlights and interviews are posted online at ustennisleague.com). I want to say thanks US Tennis league for all they did, liked the tournament, the league and enjoyed every piece of it, I’m going to play again next season and honestly I wouldn’t change a thing about it, Very good!
And Mayen had very nice words about her experience.
